Right now, additional details surrounding the crash remain unavailable.

Commentary on Ayron Thelen Truck Accident in Sherman Township

It's incredibly concerning to see the most recent information say that a truck driver didn't stop at an intersection. Images I've seen show there are stop signs on Drew while there aren't any on Coldwater. If these details are accurate, how exactly does a professional driver fail to see a stop sign, let alone cross traffic. It's a serious sign there was something going on that could have been avoided. What that mistake was could drastically change how challenging it will be to get the victim's loved ones the justice they deserve.

When it comes to commercial truck wrecks, things are almost never open-and-shut. Even if police came out tomorrow and said they're arresting the truck driver for blowing through a stop sign, that would not guarantee any kind of accountability for the driver's employer. They have the right to defend themselves just as any of us do. The difference is they have teams of professionals dedicated to doing just that.

Without the right experience and evidence, victims and families can find it difficult to get the resolution they deserve, which is why I do what I can to inform people of these challenges whenever possible. That can be a vital first step getting the help and the resolution that can make things as close to right as possible. The article below delves into this further, so I encourage everyone to read it and ensure they're as informed as possible.
